- Synopsis / Plot
- Altman returns to the narrative strategy of Nashville, using a massive cast and a complex web of subplots to probe the flaws and fissures in modern America as made evident at a big society wedding marrying old money with new, Italian blood with Irish. If the film's lampooning and farcical plotting seem a little insubstantial and obvious in comparison to Nashville, there is no denying that it is often very funny, while the cast (gloriously presided over by Lillian Gish, even though she plays dead for most of the film) is impressive indeed, including veteran director John Cromwell as a doddery bishop.
